PLEASE NOTE: There is a grace facility in certain areas for ambulance, public and disabled drop-off/pick-up that also enables people the opportunity to find a car parking space - this is not advertised on the tariff boards. These apply to:

Cheltenham General Hospital : The Sandford Road Car Park (20 mins)

Gloucestershire Royal Hospital : the grace period is 15 Minutes within the Multi Storey and The Orchard Car Park, the 20 Minutes ONLY applies to the designated 20 minute drop off and pick up areas.

Our parking charges are in line with other car parks in Gloucester and Cheltenham to discourage people who are not visiting our hospitals from parking in our car parks.

If you have lost your ticket you will be charged the full daily rate of £11.10

How do I pay for my parking?

There are two types of visitor car parks on our hospital sites:

Pay and Display – using one of the machines situated within each car parking area and displaying your purchased ticket in your windscreen.

Pay on exit – take a ticket at the barrier and pay at a machine on foot before returning to your car. Please follow the instructions at each machine.

Do the machines accept credit cards?

You can pay by cash, credit or debit cards, and the ‘pay on foot’ machines will give change. The machines and the payment methods they accept are colour-coded as follows:

  • GREEN – Cash only
  • RED – Card only payment (i.e. credit or debit cards)
  • YELLOW – Cash and Card payment.
